Arafat's life has been a study in nefarious ambiguity. He may have been born in Cairo, Gaza, or Jerusalem. He may or may not be a relative of the Mufti of Jerusalem. He may or may not accept the State of Israel. He may or may not be able (or willing) to stop terrorist attacks. And now, he may or may not be dead.
Debka.com tells of the most incredible palace intrigues, and allegations of burying Arafat alive would lend support to these things.
Arafat has been an unmitigated disaster for world peace, and most poignantly the Palestinians. We can only hope that his successors know this and why, and are determined to put his legacy where it belongs. Among those of Stalin, Pol Pot, Ivan the Terrible, Caligula, and Hitler.
